We are excited for our Annual Fundraiser, Camp Eemah. We will celebrate one very special honoree, Helene “Eemah” Schlafman, for 50 years of visionary leadership at Beth Israel! The event will feature great food and an impressive silent auction, and the program will showcase a special tribute to Helene. Sam “The Cooking Guy” Zien will be our emcee for the evening. Following the program, enjoy a dessert reception and an afterparty with a DJ and dancing. Dress in camp casual attire and come prepared for a fun-filled evening!
Hagit, a young woman with a mild mental deficiency, works in a toilet-paper factory and lives with her mother, Sarah, a divorcée who gave up her life for her daughter. When Hagit embarks on her first romantic relationship, she keeps it a secret from her overbearing mom. Israeli director Nitzan Gilady sparkles in his feature debut, a richly detailed family drama for which Asi Levi’s performance as Sarah earned her the Best Actress prize at the 2015 Jerusalem Film Festival.
